Morgan Heritage keeps roots reggae rolling into a new century

Even as they're working to establish themselves, the members of Morgan Heritage are unafraid to court controversy. Three in One includes "Anti-War Song," which is addressed to world leaders regarding the current international situation. Una says that she and her brothers do not fear the sort of condemnation that has recently dogged the Dixie Chicks for speaking out. " 'Who God bless, no man curse.' That's what we believe," she notes, quoting a Jamaican proverb.

Una Morgan: 12 percent of Morgan Heritage and 3 percent of Denroy Morgan's prodigious progeny.

With their cross-cultural heritage and tours that have taken the band to Europe, Australia and Africa, Una feels she and her brothers have become citizens of the world. "You get to see everything from everywhere," she says. "You get to really understand and become convinced that nowhere is really better than anywhere. Because for all of us, if you cut me, I bleed red; if you cut you, you bleed red. We are all the same in God's sight."
